You can create unique gift packages and help the environment by recycling! Before tossing old road maps into the trash (which are FREE to AAA members), use them to wrap gifts. The maps are colorful and may also be a conversation piece (especially if the recipient has been to the area of the map). Simply add a colorful ribbon for an exquisite presentation!
Other “free” wrapping paper could include old newspapers — especially the colorful comics sections for children’s birthday gifts.
